Sunday Nights

In Struggles by Tanya0 Comments

So, it’s Sunday night. Obviously that means the new work week starts tomorrow.  (Insert heavy sigh here.)  It happens every week and yet every week I somehow think I can escape it if I don’t go to bed on time. As soon as I go to bed, it’s like admitting defeat to the inevitable.  I know it’s ridiculous logic, but there it is!

Anyway, my hubby and I are watching a show before I cave in and go to bed two hours late.  He is having a bowl of cereal.  Of course there’s nothing wrong with that.  Yet I feel a little jealous. It’s silly.  He has the points left for the day and I don’t.  That makes sense. He’s a foot taller than me so clearly he should eat more than me!  Logically I know that, but I still feel jealous!  I also have an urge to eat while watching TV for no apparent reason. I found myself looking in the fridge before we started the show and the funniest thing happened. I realized I’m NOT REALLY HUNGRY!!

I had a satisfying dinner. I also had a huge apple and a single serving of pretzels since then. It’s now after 11pm. Do I really need any food?  What do I need energy for? I don’t need to fuel up for sleeping!!

So, I am now daintily sipping a decaf hazelnut coffee sans cream and thoroughly enjoying it.  Yet I keep thinking about eating. But I am in control and I will remind myself that I’m NOT REALLY HUNGRY!!
